Where Gardens Are Gorgeously Beautiful


The A ttactiveness of theFlora of Palm Beach


Palm Beach, Fla., Jan. 25, 1000.-Verdure prolific, with effects tropical and
beautiful, are the impressions the visitor and tourist gain at the first glimpse of
Palm Beach, all of which is accentuated and emphasized by a trip anywhere int
*
this delightful section of Florida.
This season the tropical gardens of the Hotel Royal Poinciana are more
attractive than ever. The coloring seems more vivid, intense and satisfying than
ever previously noted.
'The beautiful crotons are most admirable specimens. One odd-shaped bed is
gorgeously magnificent with a collection of odd and rare varieties. The veined,
splashed, mottled, serrated and brilliantly colored leaves mingle together in an
indescribable beauty appreciated even by the eye that is not trained and by those
who, as a rule, do not pay attention to natural attractions of this kind. This
bed of crotons, however, is so unique and wonderful that no one can pass by that
way without being attracted by the prevailing beauty.
In the symmetrically planned gardens summer blooming plants are doing
their very best in constant bloom, as if never tired of sending up stalk after stalk
* "r trumes and clusters of the prettiest flowers imaginable.


The dear old delightful Cocoanut Grove is again almost its beautiful self
'again. Net sol low ago a summer's windstorm, followed by a chilly winter's
lAtst, 'that: cdme one night, played havoc with the beautiful and closely over-
lapping ftonds, but now the promise of the old-time beauty of the grove is almost
complete, so vigorous and persistent being the growth of this semi-tropical tree.
Outdoor entertainments-day and night-will soon be the feature here this
season, the Cocoanut Grove being especially attractive at night when myriads of
vari-colored incandescent globes spring into brightness.
In the gardens of the cottagers the same riotous growth of verdure is to be
seen, each owner being seemingly anxious to out-do his neighbor in the establish-
ment and maintenance of a garden that shall always be an alluring beauty spot
and a delight.
And the best of it all is that the visitor is made to feel that all this is to be
shared by coming in and meandering along the attractive walks, flower-bordered
as these are.
Some of these attractive spots of nature, adorned and unadorned, are shown
in the accompanying cut, which gives, however, only a suggestiveness of the inex-
haustible beauty to be found on all sides.

THE SUN


This Story Won the first Prize ($20 In Gold) In The Sun Prize Stoi y Gontest.


HE calm and eventful day, the last in "Tilhe
T Moon of Bright Nights," April, was rapid-
ly drawing to a close.
A few lingering sunbeamns played at hide
____ and seek among the shapely sweet.guns anti
danced merrily over the sleepy waters of
Amaskohegan lake. The air was redolent with plr-
fume flung from the pure white chalices of magnolia
blooms, while s)ft sea breezes toyed with the long
gray moss which hung gracefully from the aromatic
p)in1e, under which stood Tecumnah, a stalwart young
Indian, and Minnehlaha a bIeautiful maiden with soft
brown eyes and dark shining tresses.
Earnest and lover-like were his accents, as in Long-
fellow's beautiful legend-
"Looking at fair Laughing Water,
Sang lie softly, sang in this wise:
Thou the wild flower of the forest!
Thou the wild bird of the prairie!
Thou with eyes so soft and fawn-like!
If thou only lookest at ime
I am happy, I anm happy
As the lilies of the prairie.
l)Does not all the blood within nme
Lean to meet thee, leap to meet thee,
As the spring to meet the sunshine
In the moon when nights are brightest?
When thou smileat miny beloved,
Then my troubled heart is brimghtented
As in sunshine gleam the ripplesl)
That the cold wind makes in rivers.'
Yet his pleadings awakened no responsive chord in
the heart of the fair Minnehaha, for-
I"She was thinking of a hunter
From another tribe and country;
Young and tall and very handsome,
Who, one morning in the springtime,
Come to buy her father's arrows;
Sat and rested in the wigwam,
Lingered long about the doorway,
Looking backward as he departed."
Only a few short weeks ago hlad young George
Brownsloe, the son of a British otilcer, come to tite
little Indian village where Tall Chief Aniaskoliegan
lived with his only daughter, Mminnehaha.
In a few of her ranbles had the maiden met him,
returning to the wigwam alone, fearing lest her fattier,
in a fit of rage, would threaten the life of the young
hero who had fought so bravely against him in their
Seminole War. And this is the reason why the ar-
dent young Tecumah be ggd in vain for the hand of
liher who had long since eiin promised to him by hier
haughty father, tile wealthiest Indian in all the coni-
trot only was Tecumal surprised and disappointed
at her cold refusal of his offer, but he was angered as
well, and although lie had never, perhaps, read the
old adage-
"Faint heart never won fair lady,"
yet lie purposed in his heart to persist in his devo-
tions, and win hier at any (ost.
Nature had lavished her gifts upon Lake Anmasko-
began (meaning moonbeams). Smiles lingerel in
each silver ripplet and kissed its pebbly shore. Upon
its banks grew wild oranges in great profusion, and
here and there amid great masses of fragrant spider
or umbrella lilies rested an Indian canoe. Upon its
smooth beach the lazy alligator basked in the Florida
sunshine. Myriads of fishes sported in and out among
the water lilies in search of prey.
But the point de resistance in all this scenery was a
high bluff on the east shore of the lake, upon which
grew a magnificent water oak, leaning far out over
the precipice and mirrowing itself in the glassy waters
below. lere the tourist would always pause and the
artist gaze with admiring eyes.
Here in the long days of summer and the sunshiny
days of winter, Minnehaha loved to go and it was
here a few days after our story begins that slhe was
aroused from fairy dreamland by the approach of the
young man to whom she had surrendered the custody
of her heart. lie was fair, with a soldierly appear-
ance, blue eyes, noble forehead and a firm chin with
a mouth which betokened great earnestness of pur-
pose. Quite a contrast made he to the maiden at
whose feet he sat, describing his home in "The (reen
Mountain State," to which he would soon return.


"1 could not leave without seeing you again, for
you iimust know ere thins that I love you too dearly to
leave you here, for although peai e Is declared, yet
nome of the tribes are hostile. I'ave them, Minne-
haha, and go with me to my home as my bride, and
we will ever after happy Ihe.
Not a word from the maiden, yet he read something
in her face which encouraged himu.
"And he wooed her with caresses,
Wooed her with his smile of sunshine,
With his flattering words he wooed her,
With his sighliing aiid his singiiRg,
(ientlest whilspers in the branches."
Then, iust s lihe stooped to receive the answer from
her trembling lips, she caught the gliunpn of ia tall
form moving in a scruli-oak thicket cloe by. Fearing
it, to Ix. an enemy, sli< poiittedl to a foot pathl and hade
her lover hasten, Iut not until he had her proumiso to
Ilniit hiiin at this place on the followingevenin1g.



PRIZE POEM


BABY BESS
By ALMI).\D WiIllT DIDISCOIi,
Ilradentown, Fli.

The l'omn that was awarded the first prim-,, $10
in plin l Tihe Sun iPriW Poemi Contemt.

Only a silken tress,
Yet a treasure b)y far to nime
Than the costliest gem on land or wea;
For it carries imne back to the days long ledl
When I Feveril the curl from the flaxen head
Of tBahy Hew.

Only a milken triw,
Yet well I reimeinlem r the dlay, the hour,
That she clasped in her diipuiled hand a flower.
"OP, Mammna, just wee, niy swiet flower is dead,
l'erhaps causee I lovlI it so much," she said.
Dear lahiy lHess.

Only a silken trew,
lint ier words float back from the dreamy past;
perhapss I leld lily sweet flower too fast
And loved hlr tooi much, for she faded away
And I hold but this precious relic taolay
Of Baby IlM.

Only a silken tnw,
But the heart of a mother alone can know
How dear such a tiny token will grow;
And long shall I clerish with tender care
This Ionny bright lock from the flomy hair.
Of Baby IkBs.


As the young man wa has tening home he elncounl
tored Tecumah, and from the maisciois glea in hills
eye he surmisol that he was mimpectedl.
Hto )ping at the wigwam of Amaskohegan, Tewnmah
found him "nanoking his pipe of peace" and his daugh.
ter preparing hisi viands as carefully as though no dan-
ger threatenel the life of her lover. The two mlln
talked long and low, and from the furtive glance cast
in her direction, she knew that shile was watched, and
if she would win her hero, she must bide her time,
When next the evening shadows gathered about the
wigtwam, and AmnaNkohegan wrapped his blanket
around him and lay down to dtreais upon his Ixbl of
mom and pine straw, Minnehaha atole noiselemly out
of the door and ran down tlie path which lel to the
bluff.
In an instant she wa folded in a pair of strong


arms, as she breathilely whispered: "Only one mo*i
niment must I linger, for [ am watched, and it they find
us here they will take your life."
"Brave girl," hle whispered in return, "and you
will leave this lWeantiful place with so much that is dear
to you that you may go with me to a strange land?"
Then as she trustingly placed her hand in his and
answered, ".Aye, aye, forever!" he knew she was not
deceiving him.
A plot was then' made that she should meet. him
lit this pIlace' on the next St turtlay, when the mieni
would hw loitering in the village; lihe would have' a
c(iunile in renldine's, in which they would row lnroeK
the lake to where lite hld horse iln waiting, when
they would ride in haste to the nearest minister and
lie married, having imllmediatetly for their Northern
hionie.
Promptly at the Lime' set on Saturday she reahedlvi
thie' biltr
"It was piat the hour of trysting,
Yet she lingered for him still."
And was 1sooni rewarded by seeing him rowing toward
her. But hark I the sound of clashing hoof! nearer
they cole, nearer, until the frightened girl leaped
from the blulf into their waters below. IHer lover,
losing ne't a ntmoment, clasIlid her in his ii'nrm and
swain with her to to the other shore, pausing only one
mon.nit, as he whiseredl, "Think once more, lily
darling, of your mter flee; are you willing to miake
it ?" Then, like Minne'haha of old, sHihe
"Seenmed more lovely an she stood there
While she siala, and blushed to say it,
'I will follow you, my husband.'"
O)iward iine' the l pursuers, but they were too
luto, and after a futile attempt to capture them
"Thlie ancient arrow-maker
Turned again unto hit labor,
Sat down by his sunny doorway
Mnurnmuring to himself and saying:
"'Thius it in our daughters leave us,
'l'hose we love and thone who love us,
*nust when they have learned to help us
When we are old and lean ulumn them.i'
'rwenty-five. years flew swiftly by, when one, bright
dity inl mnid-winter a ihandsoinme couple stepleId from
the dusty coneni onto the platform of ia siall station
on tihe lltorin- of Lake Amankohegan. Time had dealt
so gently with them that almost any old friend
would have recognized them as the hero and heroine
of our story.
(reat changes had taken place in the once fanmil
iar place where now nothing remained to remind one
of tle Indian race but a few shell mounds, and here
and there an arrow head. A rich English Lord with
many strings of bright-colored beads had bought the
lake and its surroundings from its owners, and on
its shores enterprising people had homesteaded,
erecting colonial homes, with the cabins of "Uncle
Ji." and old "Aunt Diana" among the tropical pal-
mettos in the rear.
Onward came the pair until they reached the bluff
where they had plighted their troth, and as they
paused the man bared his head and bowed, as if the
place were holy ground; then, placing one armn alfec-
tionately around his companion, he said:
"Ah, Minnie, my dear wife, it seems but yester-
day that in this same spot you gave yourself into
my keeping and risked your life by that leap into
those deep waters, and blessed my life with a love
which has lingered like a benediction ever since."
Then smiling archly, she replied: "Yes, and I
would do so again," while the echoes in the branches
of the tree overhead seemed to say, "Do no again,"
while all around
"The birds sang loud and sweetly
Songs of happiness and heart'. case.
Sang the bluebird, the Owaissa,
'Happy are you, Hiawatha,
Having such a wife to love you!'
Mang the Opechee, the robin,
'Happy are you, Laughing Water,
Having such a noble husband.'"
Then tenderly taking her hand, he drew her to a
seat beneath the old oak tree, and with his knife
carved upon its trunk:
"A Point of Tryst: Sacered to the Memory of
Amaskohegan and His Bride." *

The Birmingham, Columbus & St. Andrews Bay

IRONCLAD AUTOMOBILE WITH MACHINE GUN
FOR KAISER.
Berlin.-That Germany is prepared for war is
evident from the fact that the Kaiser's war auto-
mobile is daily exercised in the court yard and park
of the Ministry of War.
The carriage proper is closed and steel-clad all
around. There are portholes fore and aft and at
the sides, serving as lookouts, but these, too, can be
instantly protected by steel shields, operated by the
driver or the occupant of the carriage.
The chauffeur is seated in a bullet and bomb-proof
conning tower, while in the rear of the car is a plat-
form for a machine gun that can be pointed in any
direction. The gunners are protected by shields a l
around and overhead. The interior of the oar is
splendidly ventilated by new rocess. Light is fur-
nished by electricity. The speed is about thirty miles
aonhour on good road, and the Emperor's carriage
contains all possible convenience.

ington, nee May Lowney of Baltimore, now Countess
von Goeteen, wife of the Kaiser's Viceroy in German
East Africa, will occupy a high offielal post in Berlin
hereafter. Count Goetsen is slated for the position
of Director of Colonies, and as the Kaiser is very
fond of this official, he may find ways and means,
with the assistance of Parliament, to make him Min-

commanding position in the German capital, superior,
socially, to that of any other American woman. She
would reside in a palace, owned and maintained by
the Government, and her present income, already

insert an oat or grain of rye in the bottom of the
slip, then place the earth in flower pot," etc. It illus-
trates the slip and an oat, and gives the title as a
new use for grain. New ? Old as some of our sand-
hills; I can remember an aunt of mine doing this
trick half a century ago, and she learned it from her
grandmother. Therp Is nothing new under the sun,
or the moon, or the stars, for that matter.
The "Twins" crop in Colorado during 1905, stim-
ulated by an effort of the Denver Post to pay $10 to
every mother in the State who gave tirth during the
year to twins, resulted in harvesting a crop of one
hundred and ten, and the resultant sLelling out of
that number of ten-dollar gold pieceon. To feature a
newspaper in such a manner was quite novel, and no


doubt caused extra anxiety in each maternal heart
that had "expectations" in the baby line. But I ob-
serve that the Post does not plan to keep it up dur-
ing the present year of grace. My old acquaintance,
Editor Tamman, is always sprouting something new
on the public to advance the circulation of his up-to-
date evening Journal.
The Weather Bureau report, when completed and
published by Observer Mitchell, will show that last
month was a singular one, even for Florida. The
rainfall was far above the normal, and the temper-
ature kept pace with the moisture. Over on the east
coast fifteen inches, in the lake region fourteen, and
about the same on the west coast almost tempts me
to change one word in the lines-
"Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days be dark and dreary,"
into--
Into each day some rain must fall,
Each day be dark and dreary.
Thus far the predictions of old settlers that a
rainy winter is always a warm and frostless one,
seems likely to be verified. Still we are not yet out
of the woods, so I will not whistle.
A Wyoming dispatch says: "Herns in this sec-
tion are on a strike and eggs, when they can be had
at all, are worth 75 cents a dozen." The same paper
says hen fruit is so plentiful in Kentucky that on
each Sunday the people gather it and donate the lot
to the missionary cause, instead of giving money to
send to our unenlightened (7) Japanese brethren. A
cheap way to gain a name for Christian liberality.
Had eggs been worth 75 cents per dozen in old Kain-
tuck would the thrifty church members have done
what they did?
Three counties in Western Florida-those of
Jackson, Jefferson and Leon-have over 100,000
acres annually in upland cotton.
Six other counties-those of Suwannee, Hamilton,
Madison, Columbia, Bradford and Alachua-devote
150,000 acres to sea island cotton.
Farmers in these sections should see to it that
the greater part of the $500 cash offered by Hast-
ings & Co. of Atlanta, Ga.. comes to them next fall.
This company, once located at Interlachen, Fla., ex-
ploits four special varieties of cotton, to-wit: Mort-
gage Lifter, Pride of Georgia, Hastings" Sure Crop
and Rosser's No. 1, and make theie offers:


Two hundred dollars for largest yield of any one
of these four varieties from one bushel of seed
planted, in three prizes of $100, $60, $40.
Two hundred dollars from three pounds of any
variety, in three prizes similar to the preceding.
One hundred dollars from one pond of seed, in
three prizes of $50, $30, $20.
Other particulars are given which any reader of
THE SUN can probably secure by dropping a line to,
the company, whose address we give above. The
Mortgage. Lifter seed is of very lat, introduction,
first sold in 1902, and is said to mak' the best and
heaviest yielding big boll main crop known to cotton
growers. Under good cultivation two bales per acre
have been produced in Texas. The seed is Georgia-
grown, and should therefore be specially suited to
the border counties of Florida.
WOODS FIRES-WHO STARTS THEM?
In an editorial in the De Soto County News, en-
titled "Stop the Woods Fires," the writer says that
these fires "are generally set out by thoughtless peo-
ple who have nothing themselves and do not care to
see others have anything, just to see the blaze." We
take issue with the writer on this point. It may be
that once in a while thoughtless campers here in
Florida, as is common in the far West, cause exten-
sive fires by their carelessness; hut. in De Soto
County at least, as we know from personal observa-
tion, the woods are set on fire by parties intention-
ally to burn off the old grass so the new may spring
up for their range cattle to feed on. Year after
year, for the last ten or twelve years this has been
done, in spite of the peril involved to settlers in
sparsely 'populated districts in the eastern and north-
ern part of De Soto County. In defiance of law, of
course, but done in such a way that no man can say
he saw the match struck and applied to the dry grass
of early winter. These people live near settled com-
munities, perhaps twenty-five to fifty miles away
from the section in which they drive their cattle to
forage on lands they have no ownership in.
A recent instance in proof of our statement is
given. Early in January two horsemen with a drove'
of cattle passed through one of the townships of De
Soto County bordering on Polk. Their passing was
observed by two or three persons. Riding through
a little settlement where there were groves, pineries

Hints


for


Her


Ladyship


During the stay of Mrs. Sarah Tyson Rorer in
this city recently she spoke of so many things of vital
interest to us women that I regret I did not have
a stenographer with me to take a number of notes
so that I might give the many women of the State
of Florida interested in their household duties the
benefit of what Mrs. Rorer told us.
It would have been well if we could all have been
there and heard the eminent visitor lecture.
What I like about Mrs. Rorer is that she does not
mince matters (that is, when she chopping some kind
of food), but that she goes directly at things. When
she speaks you are in the full realization that she
knows just what she is talking about, and that you
are getting the full benefit of years of unceasing ex-
perience.
It was amusing to me to hear the many ridiculous
questions which were propounded to Mrs. Rorer,
seepinlgly the most absurd things imaginable being
asked of her. According to its merits, as absurdity,
came the answer, which no doubt made many a ques-
tioner "very, very angry" with Mrs. Rorer. There
need not have been any such sentiment felt, as there
was no harsh feeling on her part, and the answer
was just the proper one to give, as has been long ago
discovered by the speaker in her hundreds of lectures
given in various parts of the country.
Among the things of importance which Mrs.
Borover brought out was her statement that she be-
leved that the best results of her work were to be
found in the State of Illinois, where she has traveled
extensively, and where she has given many lectures
in the various eetions of that State. An a result
she has found on her every return that the condition
of household work had been elevated and made a
oevw of pleasure and satisfaction, and all that to
a v rWSard and mnost encouraging degree.
mi bri to the consider of the fact


By Eleanore du Bois

that Florida should have a similar experience. I
gather this generally from the spirit of the few meet-
ings which were recently held here. This, of course,
no reflection on the household of Her Ladyship in
Florida, but a plea for the betterment of what we
have and an advancement along these lines.
It comes to me that it would be a splendid prop-
osition to have the women's clubs in the various
larger cities of the State consider the matter and get
together on the proposition of having Mrs. Sarah
Tyson Rorer come to Flori4a to give a series of lec-
tures in these various larger centers, and thus make
her splendid demonstration accessible to all.
It would take quite a sum to do this, as Mrs.
Rorer does not travel and give lectures under a cer-
tain seemingly high price, but yet a very fair one for
what she gives in return. If we cannot get this plan
ready for this winter season, let us work at it in
time for next winter season.

A BOON TO FARMERS' WIVES.
The loneliness of farm life, which has been con-
siderably reduced by rural mail delivery, has been
Still further lessened in a number of Western com-
munities by the introduction of the telephone.
The chief obstacle to the wider use of this great
modern convenience has been the high rates charged
by the regular companies. Several plans to obviate
this difficulty have been tried. The simplest is the
actual building of a line and the installation of a
small circuit by those who wish to use it.
Groups of Western farmers have themselves cut
and set the poles and strung the wires for their own
line, and after buying receivers, insulators, batteries
and other material, have divided the cost and shared
the expene of maintenance.
Lately another plan has been tried with excellent


results in a number of Wisconsin towns. A stock
company is formed of those who desire to use the ser-
vice. The shares sell for a uniform price of $50, the
average cost for installing each telephone in a good
exchange; but no stock is sold to any one except
those who rent a "phone," and only one share is
allotted for each receiver in use.
The charges are so regulated that the stockhold-
ers receive a dividend of 1 per cent a month. This is
applied to the reduction of the regular rental. In
one of the Wisconsin towns, for instance, the rent for
a 'phone in a business office is $2.25 a month and in
a residence $1 a month. The dividends average 75
cents a month, so that the actual cost to the "con-
sumer" is only $1.50 for a 'phone in an office and 25
cents for one in the home. This is less than half
the usual cost.
Many a farmer's wife, tied to her work and cut
off from social opportunities, would gladly pay 25
cents a month merely for the luxury of hearing a
neighbor's voice at will; and the farmer himself, if he
is alert, finds constant advantage in closer connec-
tion with his markets.

HOW TO SELECT GUESTS.
In entertaining small companies do not make the
mistake of inviting the same people to meet each
other too often.
If you have a party of six musical people it will
he enjoyable for them to sing, play or talk music to
one another once or twice. But remember that many
people who can neither sing nor play any instrument
enjoy music passionately.
Invite these non-musicians to meet one or two of
those who make music.

THE SUN


IN THE SUN'S CHARIOT
Intimate Talks Between Publisher and Reader
It takes time, money and hard work to build up a large, circulation
for a newspaper or periodical.
Years of time.
Much money.
Very hard work.
This journal has lived but a few months.
So we are "shy" on tne first essential for a great circulation.
Money is not plentiful with us.
And again we answer "not guilty" to another essential in the
"big" circulation proposition.
Hard work we can do, and are doing all the time.
So we are there with the ready answer to the last item on the roll
call of great circulation building.
We therefore do not call our circulation great.
It is not even "large" compared to some circulations we hear alo)ut.
It Is the largest In the State of Florida, that Is all.
We say this in passing, but we are willing to be called, and are
ready to prove it.
What we desire to talk about now is the street and newsstand sales
The Sun.
This is where the old established papers and the now papers meet
equal ground.
Here the papers are sold on their merits, the buyers choosing the
ne that suits them best and making their purchases accordingly.
It is in street and newsstand sales that The Sun exhibits its pre-
bminating preeminence.
Sales of The Sun through this channel are so far ahead of any other
newspaper sold in Florida that The Sun is first, with no other close
rough to it to be called second.
The people find in The Sun things they like to read, and they
y it.
This demand for The Sun has not heecn created by an elaborate and
,tensive scheme of advertising.
It is not of such hothouse growth.
It is the natural growth from the seed we planted when tie first
sper was issued, and its increase hat resulted from the efforts we have
tt forth since.
The seed was the quality of the reading matter contained in The
n, and the efforts have been painstaking ones to improve it.
We put in the pages of The Sun the best material we can gather,
id let the paper speak for itself.
Quite simple, isn't it?
But the simple things are the best producers of results the world

Munsey's Magazine has the largest circulation of any monthly we-
jdical in this country.
It has long been the boast of Frank Munsey, its proprietor, that he

able to present it, and in securing the most distinguished writers
1j editorial page and feature departments.
As far as our limited talent and restricted means allow us, we are
carrying out the Hearst and Munsey idea.
We are trying to make The Sun sell itself.
To particularize:
We are now running as a serial "The Czar's Spy." This is by far
the most dramatic and intensely interesting story that has appeared in
a decade. The New York Sun, the Cincinnati Inquirer and one or two
other great papers are running this story at the same time that we are.


They obtained it thle same way that we did-by buying the serial rights
from the owners.
We are )printing each week three or more short humorous sketches
< Charles Battel Loomis under the title "I've Been Thinking." Mr.
,omis's short stories are used by the best periodicals in the country.

His work has not been excelled by any who have preceded him in this
department of fiction.
Mr. W. E. Pabor's writings on agricultural subjects, which appear
each week in The Sun, are high-class productions, viewed from a liter-
ary standpoint as well as from that of the subject he writes on.
Our stories on special subjects are prepared by those most familiar
with them, and the subjects themselves are chosen with special atten-
tion to the all-imlportant detail of interest.
The work of Mr. Taylor, our cartoonist, is of such high quality
that one of our readers in far away Long Island wrote us a letter about
it this week, in which he expressed his wonder that soine of the "giants
of journalism" had not long since taken such a genius away from us.
Mr. Taylor is identified with The Sun as part owner, and he is doing
his best work for us, bI-cause tle is working for Taylor and has h~lth his
heart and his pocket in his work. As a cartoonist he has no suip'rior
and few equals. In the South he is in a class all by himself.
The foregoing sipciications are what have made The Sun Ipopular
with the people wlio have seen it.
Then, we have kept the commercial spirit out of the news and edi-
torial columns of The Sun.
Add to this the following:
It has a will of its own;
It lihas opinions; -
It expresses them;
It is free from scandal;
It villifies no one;
It is not in the "protection" business.
It prints the truth.
And you have The Sun.

LETTER


Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 14, 1900.-
Jacob Schiff, New York, N. Y.: Friend
Jake-When I left New York to spend
my winter vacation in the "Sunny
South," I felt sure that everything
would run along smoothly until at least
some time late in the spring, but no
sooner had I got located and enjoying
myself rolling around in the green grass
and flowers under the shade of the cocoa-
nuts and royal palms, than you get out
and make a speech in which you attempt
to pose as a prophet on the money ques-
tion, which you know that we agreed was
settled in 1809, and was relegated to the
resting place known as the dead issue
graveyard. The election of 1900 filled
the grave, and Parker's gold standard
telegram in 1904 was an epitaph to its
memory.
How in the world you broke into the
graveyard and dug up the corpse of the
money question, 1 fail to understand,
and, above all things, not being satisfied
with resurrecting it, you try to convey
the idea that the corpse shows signs of
a premature burial, and that it-was not
dead, and even now, after all these
years, it shows signs of life.
Times must he getting blue in Wall
Street or you would not waste time,
worrying over the possibilities or prob-
abilities of a panic. The only time to
think about a panic is when it comes,
and take advantage of every opportunity
to scale prices down to the lowest notch,
then buy in everything in sight at panic
prices and hold them for another boom
and sell out.
I agree with you about the necessity
of an elastic currency-that is for the
bankers and stock operators-and if you
are not too busy just lay off for a few
days and come down here and get a few
pointers from the turpentine operators.
There are millions in it, and all made by
using elastic currency that is, of course,
a home-made article just like we used
to work with years ago.
Don't waste any more time trying to
shake off the blues with panic speeches
like I have just read in the New York
papers, as it will lay bare our whole
program, and it will be a waste of val-


TO


uable time to make up another program
to get what we need in the way of an
elastic currency. Elastic currency
sounds all right, but it is not just ex-
actly what we will need down here.
What is needed here is more currency,
and any old kind that looks good will do
to put in the turpentine game. This is
no time to be talking about money legis-
lation in Congress, as both houses of
Congress and "Teddy with his big stick"
are out hot on the trail after the rail-
roads. Of course, we hold a big block
of stock and railroad bonds, but we need
not worry over that as the interest on
the bonds is guaranteed and we hold the
stock as an investment, not as a specula-
tion on the Stock Exchange. If there


should be any rate regulation that could
cause a smash in the market our bonds
will not be affected, and should the rail-
roads default on the interest we can put
them in the hands of receivers and then
buy up the stock at a few cents on the
dollar and own the railroads, stock,
aonds and everything.
You remember how Jay Gould worked
it on the Southwest System, and that is
the only program to follow as far as the
railroads are concerned.
Keep quiet on the money question and
say nothing about the tariff.


JAKE


Everything is coming our way as fast
as we can tale care of it, and it does not
matter much if a few of the lambs do
get in and play a little at our game as
we will be ready for them as soon as
their fleece is worth shearing.
Come down and take in the automobile
races at Ormond and the boat races at
Palm Beach, and then we can lay out a
program for a turn in the turpentine
game. Talk about Amalgamated Cop-
per, Consolidated Gas, Standard Oil, or
any of Lawson's Frenzied Financee why
they are not in it with turpentine.
The future prospects for turpentine,
from an investment standpoint, present
possibilities that outrival the palmy
days of California and Klondike. Tur-


pentine is one of the greatest necessities,
and it is strange that we ever over-
looked it as long as we have. Just
think of the millions of houses that will
be built and millions more that are al-
ready built, and all of them require
painting, which, of course, means more
turpentine. Then just think of the drug
trade, that demands large quantities for
medicinal purposes. Why, it is the
greatest remedy for cuts, scalds, bruises,
burns, aches, all kinds of rheumatism,
pFains, sore throat, chilblains, and, in
act, if you want to cut any figure in


SCHIFF


high finance in Florida it is over the
turpentine trail. Come down and get in
before it is too late, as already the heavy
operators are buying up large tracts of
timber and are boxing everything big
enough to shed a tear for the greatest
speculation in alorida-turpentine.
Come down and see this country and
drive that blue feeling away. It will do
you good and you can keep in touch with
New York markets at any of the leading
hotels.
Our friend Flagler has done wonders
for the east coast section, but there are
some people who do not have as much
appreciation for his efforts as they
should. The great Lrouble with the
kickers and growlers is that they slept
on their opportunities, and, like Law-
son in his Frenzied Finance, they are
putting in their time kicking about
what is being done and at the same time
excusing themselves for what they did
do or did not do when they had the
chance. If you can't come down send a
subscription to "The Sun" at Jackson-
ville. Get all the back numbers, for they
give in detail the way the turpentine
game is- played, as well as a general
make-up of all the important news all
over the State.
Well, Jake, I have tried my best to
write so as to draw your mind away
from making any more panic speeches,
as I want to stay down here until the
gentle breezes blow in the springtime
and the lambs begin to skip and play,
then I will return and bring a bran
new shearing outfit that will shear with-
out pain and leave no scars. If you get
hard up just go over to Stillman's and
draw on me for what you need, as I saw
Shaw in Washington and I am sure that
he will make the money in the Treasury
elastic enough to reach any of our
banks, and Stillman's bank will have the
first call when the bell rings. If you
can't come down iet me know and I will
write occasionally and give the news.
Your old friend, KLONDIKE IKE.
P. S.-Just received a telegram from
the naval stores headquarters that shows
up a clean million on my first flyer in
turpentine.

Fifty years ago, as Helen Wilmans,
then past the age of twenty-five, she be-
came the wife of Dr. Baker in Illinois,
and the couple started on the overland
trail for California, shortly after the
days of '49.
Twenty years she endured the toil-
some drudgery of ranch life, when one
morning her spirit rebelled, and after
her husband and his farm hands had left
for the fields she gathered her few
articles of clothing and, nearly penniless,
started for San Francisco with the firm
purpose of earning her livelihood by
means of literary work.
A serious task she had set for herself
when at the age of nearly fifty, when
most women woula consider that their
mode of living and work had become
fixed, this daring and energetic person
set forth to conquer the obstacles in an
unknown path.
For a time her efforts were doubtful
and despairing, but never faltering she
adhered steadily to her chosen occupa.
tion.
Often without food, and with discour-
agement on every hand, she persevered
and her indomitable will gained victory,
to the end that her work was recognized
and she prospered.
At one time a writer for the Overland
Monthly, which Bret Harte had madn
famous, she became well known to the
literary craft of the Pacific coast.
During this time she became divoi.ed
from Dr. Baker, and later came to (Chi.
cago, where she was engaged in newspa.
per work with varying success, and mar-
ried C. C. Post, also a newspaper writer
and author.
A number of years ago Mr. and Mrs.


Post removed to Douglasville, Ga., where
the Mental Science cult was first
launched. Conditions there not proving
satisfactory, the Posts came to Florida,
where they located at Seabreeze, pur-
chasing a large tract of land with the
intent of founding a Mental Science col-
ony.
To spread knowledge of the cult a
paper called Freedom was started, which
for some time was printed in Boston,
and at the time of its death, two or
three years ago, had a circulation exceed-
ing 5,000.
Afterward a publishing house was es-
tablished in Seabreeze, and the paper
and many books and other literature per-
taning to the business were printed.
Then all was prosperous. Mrs. Post
luilt a beautiful home, the handsome
Colonnades Hotel was built by Mr. Post,
streets were paved for the future Mental
Science city, an operahouse was built,
and other works of improvement carried
on with lavish hand.
The inflow of money had now become
so great from the afflicted who sought
health by means of Mental Science heal.
ing that it is alleged Mrs. Post became
negligent of her patrons, and paid no at-
tention to the letters from patients, ex-
cept to open them and remove the money
contained therein, then turning the mis.
sives over to clerks who, when reply was
needed, would make answer by means of
stereotyped forms which had been
adopted to fit various cases.
This the defendant denies, and main-
tains that she took individual notice of
every patient.

A SMALL ONE.


Congress is in session, and the Dem-
cratio whip has again been placed in
he hand of John Sharp Williams, the
smallest big man in Congress. Mr. Will-
Rms is only a big man in his own opin-
)n. His prominence in the Democratic
arty is purely the result of his small-
ess. He is useful to a certain element
cause he is small. Like a great many
sore of the rank and file of the party
a had by some means gotten the idea
at Williams was a fair-sized man, but
we read the proceedings of the last
Rmocratic national convention the
lea began to fall from our eyes, and
* began to see what a really small fel-

beneath the weight of the laurel wreaths
that will be placed on his brow. Good
roads are the crying need of the people
living in the interior. The improvement
of our rivers and harbors do not lesson
interior freight rates and is really spe-
cial legislation.-Ooala Banner. The
Metropolis is just as enthusiastic over
the project of good roads as the Banner,
yet it cannot decry the importance of
deep water harbors where the same are
possible. It lays within the power of
Mr. Clark to benefit both schemes, and

gratifying account of his labors and sue-

they couldn't get together on the prop-
osition to install waterworks. Bigger
town up the road grouping in darkness
and its newspapers fussing like Sam Hill
because they can't get their citizens
awakened on a proposition to install an
electric lighting plant. Starke has had
both of these public utilities for several
years. Town put them in when it had
less than a thousand inhabitants, it
really is funny to us to contemplate a
great, over-grown town of fifteen hun-
dred inhabitants without waterworks
and electric lights. Umph, umphi Ho,

The recent resignation of Mr. N.
Adams, brother of State Senator Frank
Adams of Hamilton County, from the
Educational Board of Control was
scarcely a surprise to those who are fa-
miliar with the inside of the university
situation. Mr. Adams, in his letter of
resignation, openly protests against the
removal of the university to ainesville
by the joint board, and resents the de-
cision of the Supreme Court sustaining
the Buckman law. He should never
have been a member of the board, and
being on it, should have retired long ago.

CARELESSS f COMMENT

Ibert Hubbard, the genial iconoclast,

istine, once lustily skyrocketed in

lpe of culture and refinement en-
or to surround their 'acquaintances'
San atmosphere in which thoughts

integrity." (These are not the ex-
words, but the gist is there, although
itly modified and simplified, in order
bring the matter within the limited
re of comprehension of certain pro-
trs of local turpentine operators'
mes.)
r. Samuel Johnson evidently was in
amorous, rather than an hypochon-
al frame of mind, when he defined
word "man" thusly:
Kan-A two-legged animal without
hers."
manifestly, then, a two-legged animal
i feathers would deserve classiflca-
with the bird or feathered curiosi-
There are birds and birds, how-

individuals possess certain charac-
etics noticeable among the feathered
k-not necessarily the vulture, the
ire (?), ostrich, the canary or the
to. Most well-behaved birds possess


delicate, fibrous little winglets of vary-
ing dimensions, which they delight to
flip and flap and flop, not infrequently
soaring to altitudinous realms unattain-
able by the two-legged featherless ani-
mal. The color line alone separates the
races. The sky line, far removed from
gunshot range, is the only safe and sure
protection to the inhabitants of the air,
whose lives are sought alike by the
white man and the colored man, who
likewise are in turn oppressed by the
stronger combined forces of capitalism
and commercialism.
But this is crawfishing. To revert to
the original subject:
Pray, why does not man fly I Well, in
a word,
For this plain reason-man is not a
bird.
Out in Colorado there thrives a pul-
chritudinous (meaning "beautiful to be.
hold") creature known in that glorious
country as the Rocky Mountain canary.
Aforesaid varmint is not a canary by
far, however, for he possesses no feath-
ers, and meanders blithely about from
morn' till night on four clodhoppers of
goodly proportion-just two 2-mutch
for a genuine, guaranteed not to rust,
fade or shrink; warranted not to rip,
ravel or run-down-at-the-heel silver-
throated songster.
He is nothing more or less than an
ordinary, every-day-in-the-week, except


Sunday, odoriferous jackass with four
legs and a hard tall, and is misnamed
canary for the reason that he arouses
you from peaceful slumber about 3 g. m.
in the morning with a sonorous bray
that echoes up the valley and resounds
down the ravine, thereby rendering im-
possible sleep or peace of mind to the
natives for many fathoms around. When
in an indignant or melancholy mood
there issues from his cavernous interior
a cyclonic cataclysm of vocal upheavals
like unto the roaring of an angry lion
whose bunioned paw has been trampled
upon by some careless intruder.
To summarize:
Man-A two-legged animal without
feathers.-Dr. Johnson.
Advice-Something no man can give.-
Elbert Hubbard.
Rocky Mountain Canary-A product
of Colorado incapable of soaring.

The distinction is obvious-one a sil-
ver-throated songster which delights the
ear and thrills the should with happiness.
The other, an ossified monster, the em-
bodiment of stubbornness and stupidity,
eternally persisting in doing something
no one wants him to do, which were bet-
ter left undone.
Likewise with the boycott and the
"Gum Bunch."


Wilmans Post


[Continued from Twelfth Page]
Beginning with her arrest by the
Government, the withholding of her
mail and the persecutory measures
adop ted to kill her paper, Freedom, her
business declined and virtually ceased.
Without publicity it could not live.
Mrs. Post, however, possessed a won-
derful hold upon the affections of many
of her followers, as the many affidavits
and hundreds of letters given to her by
them praising the efficacy of her treat-
ment, prove.
As an illustration of this gratitude
and belief, a Western man who declared
that his wife had been restored to health
through the treatment of Mrs. Post,
heard that on a certain date stock Mrs.
Post owned in a bridge across the Hali-
fax river would be sold under fore-
closure of mortgage, she not having the
funds to satisfy the debt, mailed her a
check for $5,000, the sum needed.
Two days before the date of sale the
letter was returned to him by the postal
authorities, and he immediately tele-
graphed the money to her.


"WELL, LET'S MAKE PEACE," SAID
FIELD MARSHAL.
Field Marshal Count Haeseler, while
reviewing the veterans of 1870-71, asked
an old fellow: "What was your regi-
ment comrade?"
"I served in the Chasseurs d'Afrique,"
replied Comrade Roed.
"Oh, you did?" smiled the marshal,
"well, it is about time to make peace.
Come and have a bottle on me."

The -C ar's Spy
(Continudl from Tenth Page)


which I would certainly have hesitated
to enter had not my companion been my
trusted servant. I instinctively disliked
the look of the fellow who had opened
the door. He was one of those hulking
loafers of the peculiarly Lambeth type.
Yet the alien poor, I recollected, cannot
choose where they shall reside.
Contrary to my expectations, the sit-
ting room we entered on the top floor
was quite comfortably furnished, clean
and respectable, even though traces of
poverty were apparent. A cheap lamp
was burning upon the table, but the
apartment was unoccupied.
Olinto, in surprise, passed into the
adjoining room, returning a moment
later, exelaiming-
"Armida must have gone out to get
something. Or perhaps she is with the
people, a compositor and his wife, who
ive on the floor below. They are very
good to her. I'll go and find her. Ac-
coninodate yourself with a chair, sig-
nore." And he drew the best chair
forward for me, and dusted it with his
handkerchief.
I allowed him to go and fetch her,
rather surprised that she should be well
enough to get about after all lie had tohl
me concerning her illness. Yet con-
sum option does not keep people in bed
until its final stages.
As I stood there, gazing round the
room, I could not well distinguish its
furthermost corners, for the lamp bore
a shade of green pasteboard, which threw
a zone of light upon the table, and left
the remainder of the room in darkness.
When, however, my eyes grew accus-
tomed to the dim light, I discerned that
the place was dusty and somewhat dis-
ordered. The sofa was, I saw, a folding
iron bedstead with greasy old cushions,
while the carpet was threadbare and full
of holes. When I drew the old rep cur-
tains to look out of the window, I found
that the shutters were closed, which I
thought unusual for a room so high up
as that was.
Olinto returned in a few moments,
saying that his wife had evidently gone
to do some shopping in the Lower Marsh,
for it is the habit of the denizens of that
locality to go "marketing" in the even-
ing among the costermongers' stalls that
line so many of the thoroughfares. Per-
ishable commodities, the overplus of the
markets and shops, are cheaper at night
than in the morning.
"I1 hope you are not pressed for time,
signore?' lie said apologetically. "But,
of course, the poor girl does not know
the surprise awaiting her. She will
surely not be long."
"Then I'll wait," I said, and flung
myself back into the chair lie had
brought forward for me.
"1 have nothing to offer you. signor
padrone," lie said, with a laugh. "I
did not expect a visitor, you know."
"No, no, Olinto. I've only just had
dinner. But tell me how you have fared
si ntie you left me."
"Ahl" he laughed bitterly. "I had
many ups and downs before I found my-
self here in London. The sea did not
suit Inme-neither d(lid the work. They
put me in the emigrants' quarters, and
Consequently I could gain nothing. The
other stewards were Neapolitans, there-
fore, IN'eause I was a Tuscan, they rele-
gated me to the worst post. Ah, sig-
nore, you don't know what it is to serve
those emigrants!l I made two trips,
then returned and married Admida. I
called on you, but Tito said you were in
London. At first I got work at a cafe
in Vianreggio, but when the season ended,
and I was thrown out of employment,
I managed to work my way arom Genoa
to London. My first place was scullion
in a restaurant in Tottenham Court
Road. and then I became waiter in the
Iwer hall at the Monico, and managed
to save sufficient to send Armida the
money to join me here. Afterward I
went to the Milano, and I hope to get
into one of the big hotels very soon-or
lsperhaps the grill room at the Carlton.
I have a friend who is there, and they
make lots of money-four or ive pounds
tvery week in tips, they say.'"
"I'll see what I can do for you." I


said. "I now several hotel mana gers
who might have a vacancy."
"Ah, asignorel" he cried, filled with
gratification. "If you only would! A


word from you would secure me a good
position. 1 can work, that you know-
and I do work. I will work-for her
sake."
"I have promised you," I said briefly.
"And how can I sufficiently thank
you?" he cried, standing before me, while
in his eyes I thought I detected a
strange, wild look, such as I had never
seen there before.
"You served me well, Olinto," I re-
plied, "and when I discover real sterling
honesty I endeavor to appreciate it.
Here is, alas! very little of it in this
world."
"Yes," he said in a hoarse voice, his
manner suddenly changing. "You have
to-night shown me, signore, that you are
my friend, and I will, in return, show
you that I am yours." And suddenly
grasping both my hands, he pulled me
from the chair in which I was sitting,
it the same time asking in a low, in-
tense whisper: "Do you always carry
i revolver nere in England, as you do in
Italy?"
"Yes," I answered in surprise at his
action and his question. "Why?"
"Because there is danger here," ho
answered in the same low earnest tone.
"(*et your weapon ready. You may
want it.
"I don't understand," I said, feeling
my handy Colt in my back pocket to
make sure it was there.
"Forget what I have said-all-all
that I have told you to-night, sir," he
said. "I have not explained the whole
truth. You are in peril-in deadly
peril I"
"How?" I exclaimed breathlessly, sur-
p)rised at his extraordinary change of
manner and his evident apprehension
lost something should befall me.
"Wait, and you shall see," he whis-
pered. "But first tell me, signore, that
you will forgive me for the part I have
played in this dastardly affair. I, like
yourself, fell innocently into the hands
of your enemies."
"My enemies! Who are they?"
"They are unknown, and for the pres-
ent must remain so. But if you doubt
your peril, watch--" and taking the
rusty fire-tongs from the grate he care-
fully placed them on end in front of the
deep old armchair in which 1 had sat,
and then allowed them to fall against
the edge of the seat, springing quickly
tiack as hie did so.
In an instant a bright blue flash shot
through the place, and the irons fell
aside, fused and twisted out of all recog-
nition.
I stood aghast, utterly unable for the
moment to sufficiently realize how nar-
rowly I had escaped death.
"Look! See here, behind!" cried the
Italian, directing my attention to the
back legs of the chair, where, on lKnd-
ing with the lamp, I saw, to my surprise,
that two wires were connected, ant ran
along the floor and out of the window,
while concealed beneath the ragged car-
pet, in front of the chair, was a thin
plate of steel, whereupon my feet had
rested.
Those who had so ingeniously enticed
me to that gloomy house of death had
connected iup) tile overhead electric light
main with that innocent-looking chair,
and from some unseen point had been
able to switch on a current of sufficient
voltage to kill fifty men.
1 stood stock-still, not daring to move
lest I might come into contact with some
hidden wire, the slightest touch of
which must bring instant death upon
me.

and several houses, every now and then
they looked back, doing so until they
passed a branch connecting two lakes,
and were hid from sight. Fifteen min-
utes later there was a big "fire in the
woods" in a region where there was no
resident or house within three miles.
How did this fire break out? Those
who 'watched the horsemen cannot say
that they saw the riders dismount and
set fire to the grass, but the circumstan-
tial evidence warrants the conclusion
that they did.
About the three or four settlers' homes
above mentioned, the grass had been
burned over land owned by the residents
and the new grass that had sprung up
was private property, though unfenced.
What did these two men do? They cut
out half a dozen emaciated cows, with
and without calves, and left them to
browse on the tender shoots of grass.
By what right? Not of law or right, but
of might. Law ? The cattle and hog
men generally seem to think they are
above the law and, like the freebooters
of olden days, work their evil work as
they will, regardless of the rights of
others.
It is this condition of things, more
titan any other one cause, that retards
settlement away from settled towns
along lines of railway in Florida. Where
every man is a law unto himself, no com-
nmunity can Ie, built up. The News
article is timely, but it does not reach
the primal trouble.
I lI' PRODUCTION.
When the good wife feeds the baby,
out of the milk bottle, or hands "hubby"
a glassful of the lacteal fluid at the din-
ner table, does she or he realize the im-
portance of the gentle cow in the econo-
umies of the home, in the milk supply
alone, for the whole world?
Europe has 45,000,000 cows, the
Vlited States 15,1)40,00), Russia 10,000,-
000. After these two last come, in their
order of numbers in European countries:
Germany, France, England, Austria,
Italy, Canada, Holland, Sweden and Nor-
way, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium,
Australia, Spain and Portugal, the last
named producing only six horned
cattle to every three acres of land in
cultivation.
Of course, in the figures for our coun-
try Florida does not show up very
strong. Our milk product in 1903 was
given as 3,659,050 gallons. Twelve
counties gave no report, if one should
have been made. These counties were
Bradford, l)ade, Franklin, Jackson,
Lafayette, Manatee, Monroe, Nassau,
Polk, Putnam, Wakulla and Washing-
ton. But Polk and Putnam were cred-
ited with having 492 and 358 milch
cows in that year; the others named,
none at all.
Leon led the list with 3,197 cows, giv-
ing 453,377 gallons-an average of 142
gallons per cow. Suwannee comes next,
reporting 342,910 gallons from 4,558
cows, showing quite a decrease of yield
in the flow as compared with Leon
County.
The counties yielding over 200,000 gal-
lons were Duval, Hillaboro, Orange and
Volusia. Those between one and two
hundred thousand were Alachua, Colum-
bia, De Soto, Escambia, OGadsden,
Holmes, Jefferson, Lake, Marion, St.
Johns.
Taylor was the lowest in the list, hav-
ing credit for only 1,020 gallons, with
Clay next, 2,425, and Lee with 3,470 gal.
lons.
It might be mentioned, in passing,
that the recent report of the Columbia
County Census Commissioner shows a
falling off of the number of milch cows
this year, it being given at 4,224, with a
yield of 108,331 gallons.

Each nation has its standard; the
ideals of one would not be those of an-
other. Nevertheless, there is one stand-


ard which we all recognize-that of good
health. It shines in the eye, glows in
the cheek, reddens the lip and quickens
the step. It also makes one at peace
with the world, for, indeed, as a rule the
temperament is simply a matter of the
liver. A torpid liver will in time spoil
the temper of an angel.
How many women drink enough
water?
Very few, indeed, and no wonder they
have dried-up, wrinkled faces and fig-
ures I And yet every woman can have
a water cure at home.
The first thing after rising in the
morning the teeth should be brushed,
and one or two glassfuls of water drank.
If the liver needs stimulation the
water should be hot and a little salt
added.
Drink frequently between meals, but
never while eating. Fully a pint of
water should be taken before breakfast
and on retiring at night.
